Legal Problems in Higher Education. Bureau of School Service Bulletin; Vol. 46; No. 3; March 1974.
Burnett, Collins W., Ed.
The Legal Problems in Higher Education seminar had as an objective to help the student who may become a college administrator or a college teacher to develop a sensitivity to any situation that potentially could become a legal matter and perhaps result in a court case. The seminar papers are arranged in 3 clusters: students, faculty, and institutions. In the first section the writers recommend that colleges should develop and communicate to students, before a crisis develops, a code of student conduct and related disciplinary procedures. Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment rights and procedural due process are also discussed. The section concerning faculty legal programs contains papers on collective bargaining, academic freedom, tenure, and contracts. Affirmative action programs from a legal perspective are discussed in the third section, along with accreditation and state control. Appendices contain a selected annotated bibliography on legal problems in higher education. (Author/PG)
